I think it's too warm in here. I had my winter-growers in a cooler area in the fall but moved them into the bedroom because I was worried that it was getting cold enough to prevent germination and slow the seedlings down. I'll try that again in the fall with the rest of these D. hilaris seeds, and I have more cistiflora and trinervia seeds as well.
I thought I'd post an update of my progress here. So far 5 or 6 seeds have germinated. I just found another one today actually when taking the picture below (it's in the upper left.) The first one seems to be stalled at a small size, two others appear to be attempting to go dormant (one of those just up and left from the main plant) but this one has been growing very well with no signs of slowing down. It has actually reached a similar size to my larger D. pauciflora seedlings in half the time.
Very healthy looking seedling, I have many but their chance of survival is looking pretty slim, all are still tiny and don't seem to be doing much in the way of growing. My main plant I've had years is doing well and growing right along side them so no idea what the problem is, must get a pic of the main plant as its taken on a bit of colour since I moved it from under flo lights to outside
Here's an update on my plant. The rest of the seedlings either seem to have died or gone dormant, but this one plant just wants to keep growing. I seem to have ended up with a plant with pretty strong red pigmentation.
That seedling is looking great, nice colour too, I still have loads of seedlings but they look nowhere near as good as yours, none seem to of gone dormant yet but I am keeping them a little more shaded than previous years
An update from me: My plant was losing its dew and leaves yellowing from the bottom. I decided to repot since I've had issues with the peat I was using last year. The plant has quite a substantial root system and am hoping it will either recover quickly or go through a short dormancy and resume growth.
Update on my plant: Most of the leaves browned at the tip and around the edges, but only the very bottom leaves died back completely. The growth point with several forming leaves did not move for several weeks but it's showing signs of starting to grow again. When I repotted the main root had hit the bottom of the pot and was starting to grow sideways, while a second root was starting to form. I guess I should have started it in a taller pot to begin with!
